With a Stanley No. 45, Type 4...

It did have a bit of help, though..

A Mr. Jackson..making kerf cuts, where the plane will be entering and leave...to prevent any blowouts..

Tested for fit...
Top drawer has both of it's dados done..will be working my way down to #8...

One last detail..

I add a "starter Bevel" on the back end of drawers...eases the drawer's entrance into the case...helps when they are full, BTW..

2 hours IN the shop...might wait until the shop cools way down, before I start again, today..
.............
I like that hold down you made...Very clever!!

2 more dados were done, last night..
   
Reason for the late night trip to the shop....was to take one package of knobs to the shop, and, one pine 1x4x6' plank..as I wanted to cut a back for one drawer..
   
There was a "problem" though..
   
No access to the tablesaw, right now, so..
   
Mitersaw, Cordless type...then checked for height..allowing for the 1/4" plywood to pass under the back..
   
Hmm, needed to loose a bit of the edge..
   
And, again, no tablesaw available...we have ways..
   
Follow up with a jack plane to clean up..
   
That knot made things ...interesting

Managed to get Dados #3 and #4 for Drawer #2..and a second drawer back done...

was getting rather late, and I was getting crampy....figured there is always tomorrow

Stay tuned..
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

Have used that "style" of hold down before..
   
usually whatever scraps sitting around..can be adjusted to whatever width of drawer side is needed. 
   
And, that is all there is to this hold down...the 2 bottom pieces are kept tight to the sides of the board (had to drive a couple sides in will a block & Mallet) then the top 2 kept the part from hopping back out of the jig..

When done with making dados, I keep the screws, and toss the parts.  usually, the next dado project would need a different set of parts...

I could see a market for one...and it could be made to accept a variety of width boards, with maybe a "cam lock" to hold the boards in position.

Quick trip to the shop, this morning...Hauled a 1/4" x 24" x 48" plywood panel to the shop...dragged the tablesaw out and made a few cuts.

I also sharpened the cutter in the Stanley #45...and got 2 more dados done, for Drawer #3


Plywood panels are for the bottoms of drawer #1. and drawer #2....
Drawer #1 is still in the clamps, due to a loose set of tails getting glued up, but..
   
Drawer #2 is done..assembly-wise..

And Drawer #3 is awaiting it's plywood bottom...
   

Need to haul another panel or two to the shop...first, I'll need that tablesaw back..right now, Drawer #1 is sitting on it...
Stay tuned..
